|Client: SoCal City GovernmentResponsibilities: Complete IT ProviderClient Since: 2008 - Present|
An outgoing IT Manager for the City approached Maxtreme with their issues. Our first task was to stabilize the server environment that was left in shambles by a previous consultant. After stabilizing their multiple servers, internal mail service and client images for Macs and PCs, Maxtreme assumed full responsibility of all IT related systems. We facilitated the complete replacement of all systems and turned the City into the first known Government office to be entirely Mac-based from server to client.

Since assuming all IT Department responsibilities, Maxtreme has proven itself to be a reliable partner that is highly integrated with the daily operations of the City and all of its departments. We have been able to mange and maintain costs while improving the end-user experience with the switch to Mac desktop and laptops. Even being a nearly 100% Apple environment, the City has not lost compatibility with all outside PC services.
